BREAKING: CC Sabathia on DL, lineup

CC Sabathia has been placed on the 15 day DL with a grade 1 strained adductor muscle. He felt it in the fourth inning against the Mets on Sunday night but didn't tell the Yankees until his bullpen session yesterday. He will miss two starts and will return after the All Star break.

Freddy Garcia will return to the starting rotation in Sabathia's absence. He will make the start this Friday against the White Sox. Kind of scares me that Garcia is back in the rotation but maybe this time he will prove something. I will be at the game Friday so hopefully I won't be ripping hairs out of my head if Garcia gives up eight runs. Adam Warren should be getting called up in place of Sabathia on the 25 man roster.

Lineup against Ubaldo Jimenez:

Curtis Granderson CF
Nick Swisher RF
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Mark Teixeira DH
Raul Ibanez LF
Eric Chavez 1B
Russell Martin C
Jayson Nix SS

SP: LHP Andy Pettitte
